The Open Apparel Registry (OAR) is a free, open data tool mapping garment facilities worldwide and allocating a unique ID to each.

JOB DESCRIPTION

The OAR’s DevOps Engineer will oversee and be accountable for development of the OAR’s web application, mapping tool, and underlying database. The DevOps Engineer will work closely with the OAR’s leadership team, product team, and contracted technical provider to:

  • Provide leadership in developing an infrastructure and deployment strategy to scale our current platform from an apparel-specific web application and database with over 80,000 facilities to a broader range of global retail supply chains, with the potential to identify millions of production and manufacturing facilities.
  • Balance the immediate need of scaling the platform with the strategic need to position the organization as core infrastructure within the supply chain transparency / ESG ecosystem. The position is remote, but we ask that the employee be located in the eastern time zone of the US, or be willing to align their work schedule with those hours. This is a full-time, salaried position within the US. Benefits include medical and vision insurance and a generous parental leave and vacation policy. The OAR is a lean organization with a remote staff base.
